Looking for a new gig and my book doesn’t reflect what I did at my last agency because we pitched a ton but very little was actually produced. How would you guys deal with this? (Cont)
My agency instituted a raise freeze ~1 day before my yearly review (3 months ago). I was an underpaid AAE but am now 30-40% below the other AEs. I was distraught to not get the raise I really need but I respected that it was "company-wide, no exceptions." I've recently heard some *did* quietly get raises. If I was making a livable wage, I would tough it out but it really hurts to hear people at higher salaries are getting what I was denied. I feel totally taken advantage of. What do I do?

How many of my fellow black women (or other women with coilier hair textures) find that video calls are a new struggle in this era of wfh? Now that I’m at home so much I no longer straighten my hair and pretty much just let it do what it wants (most I look like I have an Afro) and every time I realize I have an upcoming zoom call I’m left scrambling trying to figure what to do with my hair so it looks “appropriate”. Am I alone? And if not, what are some ways y’all are dealing with this?

I currently max out my 401k, is it worth reducing my 401k contributions to save aggressively for a 20% down payment. My lease ends in July so would consider buying around that time frame. Or is it better to keep maxing 401k and just put less down and pay the PMI?
